Winter training starts this week at Nebo Ridge. Two eight-week sessions of two evenings per week. 45 minutes of core work, followed by an hour of spinning and power intervals on the bike. During winter training, our normally very nice team coaches, Steve and Bob, morph into sadistic drill sergeants. They seem to take pleasure in bringing me to tears. But even that would be tolerable, were it not for Coach Steve's penchant for playing ELO and ELO-covers throughout the sessions. I'm no expert in human rights law, but I believe that violates the Geneva conventions.
